HEF sponsors Cadet Cupboard Food Drive

By on September 10, 2018

Did you know that for $6, you can feed a child in need in our community for an entire weekend? Food is a basic need for everyone but especially for growing children. Childhood nutrition is critical to their mental and physical development.

Cadet Cupboard, a food pantry for the students in the Hilton Central School District, provides children in need with essential, nutritious food that they can subtly take home and safely prepare on their own. The Hilton Education Foundation is sponsoring a Cadet Cupboard Food Drive on Saturday, September 15, from 9 a.m. to noon at Hilton High School (back door near tennis courts).
